With the sun slowly rising on a crisp, cool, beautiful Thanksgiving morning, approximately 250 runners and their fans gathered at the Lake House for the annual (just over a) 5K Turkey Trot. Wearing their specially designed race day tee shirts, children and adults lined up together at the start area. At 7:59 am, Nic blew the horn and the runners sprinted off. The course took a left onto Seabrook Island Road, left on The Haul Over, left on Cat Tail Pond, left on Seabrook Island Road, and then left back to the Lake House for a total distance of 5K plus approximately 4/10 of a mile. Crossing the finish line, each runner was greeted with enthusiastic kudos by onlookers.
Congratulations to each of the runners who participated in the Turkey Trot! The first male to cross the finish line was #145, Callan Hasling who won for the second year in a row! The first female to cross was #6, Eleanor Morales, who also won for the second year in a row.
Special thanks to Nic Porter, Jamie Mixson, the Lake House staff, and the volunteers for organizing and managing this terrific event. A great way to start off Thanksgiving celebrations!
